"Star Trek: Enterprise: Broken Bow: Part 1 (#1.1)" (2001)
Admiral Maxwell Forrest: Jon. I think you know everyone.
Capt. Jonathan Archer: [noticing Klaang in the intensive care unit] Not everyone.
Admiral Daniel Leonard: It's a Klingot.
Vulcan Attaché Tos: A Kling-on.

[Admiral Forrest is speculating about Klaang's purpose on Earth]
Admiral Maxwell Forrest: Ambassador Soval thinks it would be best if we push off your launch until we've cleared this up.
Capt. Jonathan Archer: Well, isn't that a surprise. You'd think they would've come up with something a little more imaginative this time.

Admiral Maxwell Forrest: We may need to defer to their judgment.
Capt. Jonathan Archer: We've been deferring to their judgment for a hundred years!
Admiral Maxwell Forrest: Jon.
Capt. Jonathan Archer: How much longer?
Sub-Commander T'Pol: Until you've proven you're ready.
Capt. Jonathan Archer: Ready to what?
Sub-Commander T'Pol: To look beyond your provincial attitudes and your volatile nature.
Capt. Jonathan Archer: Volatile? You have no idea how much I'm restraining myself from knocking you on your ass.

Admiral Maxwell Forrest: When Zefram Cochrane made his legendary warp flight ninety years ago, and drew the attention of our new friends, the Vulcans, we realized that we weren't alone in the galaxy. Today, we are about to cross a new threshold. For nearly a century, we've waded ankle-deep in the ocean of space. Now it's finally time to swim.

"Star Trek: Enterprise: In a Mirror, Darkly: Part 1 (#4.18)" (2005)
Captain Maximilian Forrest: [after being shown the new torture booth] There's something to be said for a good old-fashioned flogging.

Captain Maximilian Forrest: I think you enjoy your work too much, Doctor.

Commander Jonathan Archer: I know Admiral Black has an agent on Enterprise. I want the name.
Captain Maximilian Forrest: Do you really think that the Admiral would plant a spy on *my* ship, and then tell *me* who it is?

"Star Trek: Enterprise: First Flight (#2.24)" (2003)
Commander Jonathan Archer: NX Beta to Commodore Forrest. You might wanna check your sensors. You'll see we're holding steady at 2.5.
Commodore Maxwell Forrest: Congratulations. Now get the hell back here!

Commander Jonathan Archer: You're right sir. We were reckless. We knew there'd be consquences. We knew we'd probably be thrown out of Starfleet.
Commodore Maxwell Forrest: You may have been right.
Commander Jonathan Archer: A.G. and I may never fly again. But it's a small sacrifice to make if it keeps this project going. We didn't build this engine to make test runs around Jupiter. We built it to *explore*. If my father were alive today, he'd be standing here asking, "What the hell are we waiting for?"

"Star Trek: Enterprise: The Forge (#4.7)" (2004)
Vulcan Ambassador Soval: We don't know what to do about Humans. Of all the species we've made contact with, yours is the only one we can't define. You have the arrogance of Andorians, the stubborn pride of Tellarites. One moment, you're as driven by your emotions as Klingons, and the next, you confound us by suddenly embracing logic.
Admiral Maxwell Forrest: I'm sure those qualities are found in every species.
Vulcan Ambassador Soval: Not in such confusing abundance.

Admiral Maxwell Forrest: Ambassador... are Vulcans afraid of Humans? Why?
Vulcan Ambassador Soval: Because there is one species you remind us of.
Admiral Maxwell Forrest: Vulcans.
Vulcan Ambassador Soval: [nods] We had our wars, Admiral, just as Humans did. Our planet was devastated, our civilization nearly destroyed. Logic saved us. But it took almost 1500 years for us to rebuild our world and travel to the stars. You Humans did the same in less than a century. There are those on the High Command who wonder what Humans would achieve in the century to come. And they don't like the answer.

"Star Trek: Enterprise: Fallen Hero (#1.23)" (2002)
[Archer has been ordered on an urgent mission to transport a Vulcan ambassador off the planet Mazar]
Captain Jonathan Archer: Any idea what the emergency is?
Admiral Maxwell Forrest: Well, this may come as a shock to you, Jon, but the Vulcans aren't talking.
Captain Jonathan Archer: Imagine that.

"Star Trek: Enterprise: Future Tense (#2.16)" (2003)
Admiral Maxwell Forrest: 100 light years from Earth. You might have solved the greatest missing person case of the century.
